Mi Hazank calls for penal code amendment to reduce same-sex age of consent

Opposition Mi Hazank has initiated an amendment to the penal code to restore the legal age of sexual consent for same-sex couples from the current 14 to 18, party lawmaker Elod Novak said on Tuesday.

Novak told a press conference that, if necessary, the party would also initiate the amendment to the constitution to change the current situation so as to give proper protection to young people who are more vulnerable than adults.

He said Mi Hazank was the only party that demands a ban on “homosexual propaganda marches”, the same way as paedophilia is banned.

Novak said homosexuality was a “sexual deviance which is unnatural and a biological dead-end”.

Geza Halasz, Mi Hazank’s spokesman on family and social affairs, said that whereas Hungary’s child protection law prohibited homosexual propaganda for minors, it allowed an adult to convince a same-sex minor to engage in sexual activity. “There is serious legal inconsistency, nearing hypcrisy, in the regulations,” he added.
